Education in Wingham is the responsibility of the New South Wales Department of Education and Communities (NSWDEC) which aims to
"... improve the social and economic wellbeing of the people of NSW through a responsive and innovative education and training system."
The NSWDEC regulates early childhood education but attendance at school is not compulsory until a child reaches of 5 or 6 years of age.
Most children are educated at Primary and secondary  levels in Public Schools  which are funded and administered by the states government.  Adequate places are reserved to enable children to attend the school nearest to the permanent residence of their parent or carer. These would usually be open schools that take students of all abilities, but secondary students who pass the Selective High Schools Test  can attend  a selective_school. There is also the option to attend a private school
All students are expected to work towards  the Higher School Certificate (HSC)
Tertiary education Tertiary education is availble to all students attaining the HSC with the option to attend  university or a College of Technical and Further Education (TAFE)
Education in Australia is currently undergoing reform which includes the development of a National_Curriculum
